    Thanks Dizon and Zou

    Good points and it's inspired me to do gestures regularly, never heard about them before I discovered the spartan camp, but I felt I was improving the more I did and it loosened up my muscles (brain included). The last post was done with my graphics tab and Photoshop and can't get the same flow of line than my pencil it doesn't drag as much and they go all over the place (frustration!) I geuss I will try my next batch on the tablet and see if I can improve, just a case of getting use to it.

    Thanks for the crits

    Haven't done any Jack sketches yet, sorry SSG guys. Just had to do the chow this week. here's my finished entry, was quite pleased with how fast I did it (for me). it's took about 18-20 hours in total.

    any crits welcome

    Hi Angel! Sorry I haven't been around for a while. Anyway on to the crits!

    I think the Green Fairy is the best I've seen from you so far. The hands look great but I feel her left lower arm is a bit long. Also I wish you could paint out your line work or at least leave out some traces of it. It's very noticeable and what it does is that it flattens out your work. Kind of like those cartoons in Cartoon Network, with shows like Dexter's Lab or Powerpuff Girls where the outlines are very heavy and thus cause the characters look flat, but that is their intention anyway. It doesn't work well with realistic work if what you're trying to depict is realism.

    Her rosy cheeks aren't that convincing as well. They look more like bruises. I think the cheeks should have a more saturated color for it to work. But be careful not to over do it. Also based on the pic, the main light source is coming from the right, but keep in the mind the side of her face that is receiving lesser light since it's farthest away from the light than the other side. For example, the highlights on both cheeks are the same value. It shouldn't be that way. The highlight that's closest to the lightsource should be stronger than the other one. The same deal with the whites of her eyes.

    Ok, that's a lot already so I'll try to give you crits on your Zombie Slayer next time.

    Redrew Erica the zombie slayer - used my friend Erica who works in an office and happens to be an actress, might do it as a film poster...seems fitting

    Crits welcome

    Finished the Chow - so much fun drawing the this one. I'm gonna do the film poster style at a later date and get it printed for my mate Erica (who is the model for this - put her photo in the wips for crits) - gonna redo the hands as well and maybe the blood spatters and retouch the background...

    crits most welcome

    Haha! Nice! Good job with using the reference. It's much better than the first one.

    Hi Dizon

    Cheers for the crits on the CHOW 159 - I was pleased with the hands they just kind of came out that way - I think I hit my peak with them, but then carried on when I was tired to finish it in time and the rest went a bit downhill :/. Wasn't sure whether to leave the black lines on her or not, but now you mention it, she would be best realisitically rendered - I am going to have another go at her face I'd like to sell prints of her at some point, thanks for your help.

    @ #129 - Thanks

    hi angel

    my bad luck always make me visit when you finish a concept.
    I like how you changed to the new head.
    One thing to say: you redrawed the head from the photo. If i was you i would only pick the interesting things in his head to integrate them top my character (for example: the little mouth , the big jaw and the hole in his cheeks)

    good luck and keep doing those little exercices (gesture, life drawing ...)

    Not been around for while, went to Croatia for a week, had a really relaxed time, sadly didn't feel inspired to do any drawing but got plenty of photos.

    Felt inspired when I came back though, wanted to have a go at this months stylized challenge...Amazon Woman...

    nice concept at the last.

    suggestions:perhaps try a different haircut. (adding more volumes to suggest his power and savagery)
    perhaps she must tend his arrow a little bit
    and the middle of her arrow is too thick.

    Hi Zou - nice to see you

    Thanks for the suggestions, I will try different hairstyles I think If I have time, not sure whether to do long and flowy but as she lives in a forest and probably cuts her hair with a knife I just first went for the straggly look. Maybe dreds?

    anyway thanks I'll visit you soon

    Think I've finished...

    Having trouble with saturation and brightness, will have a look tomorrow...

    EDIT: had another play around with the levels and saturation, I quite like it overly colourful, and prefered it when compared with the desaturated version, but not sure if it's a bit too much...any suggestions welcome

    A few sketches I did over the weekend,

    Joanna Newsom, I had to try and draw her hair from an image I found, and working out some hollywood legends caricatures to go with sofia and marilyn. Lauren Bacall is difficult to capture, I think I need to find a better photo.

    Had some feedback from the stylised challenge...her skin was a bit too bright so tanned her up a bit. She looks a lot more Amazon now...

    hi

    good coloring job, it enhanced the drawing well.
    one suggestion: the upper curve of her thigh is symetrical to the lower one, you should tweak it (liquify filter )
    i don't know if the contest ended, but you could add some background (foliage and sun rays ... there are many sweet photos over the web)

    post 138: good point on the girls

    Cheers Zou, I was afraid she was too colourful, nice to hear I got it right..

    Thanks for the suggestion, I see what you mean about the leg, unfortunately no time to change before deadline, but I will do it at some point. Also thanks for the background suggestion, and I was thinking about doing more in the background but I didn't have time, I need practice doing enviros

    Wow Angel, The caricature is just looking great! Good job with adding a color background at the beginning. You should do that more often. Keep working on her face more. There's something odd about her cheek area. Also make the orange color under her chin more vibrant by adding a bit more of saturation.

    Good work! I've a crush on Cate Blanchett hehe

    Hi angelI

    good work on this last one, the painting is really nice.
    one refining sug: her forehead seems burned by light, even the in the ref it seems burned you should add a smooth gradation.
    Try to work her haire a little bit (avoiding the bottom texture)

    the Rihanna sketch is funny

    kepp it mate

    Lovely lighting, but be careful not to get too small with your brushes.

    Cheers for the comments and pointers peeps

    Dizon: suggestions noted...yeah she is one of my favourite actresses to watch, every character she plays is so interesting, glad I could do her justice.

    Zou: Thanks for the tip about her forehead, I'll have a look at that too.

    Hai: Cheers - I'm curious, why do you suggest not going too small with brushes?

    Well the general advise is to keep your brushes as big as you can for the job it needs to do. When you start blending and colouring with brushes that are too small, things tend to get messy pretty fast. So big brushes should make it easier to colour and blend smoothly.
